The East Greenland Ice-core Project

We aim to retrieve an ice core by drilling through the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS)
and hope to gain new knowledge on ice stream dynamics and past climate

Important: EGRIP 2021 field season cancelled!

It is sad to inform that the EGRIP Steering Committee unanimously has decided to cancel the EGRIP 2021 field season due to the COVID-19 restrictions we expect this summer. To keep a cost-efficient season and to have a camp open to all the participating nations we have decided that full 2022 and 2023 season will give a better solution.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact your national representative (https://eastgrip.nbi.ku.dk/partners/) or our logistical staff, Marie Kirk (m.kirk@nbi.ku.dk) and Iben Koldtoft (koldtoft@nbi.ku.dk).
